  1. You already know my suggestion. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>
     
  2. If the "leaked originals" are worth any more than any other copy after the revised copies are released, I'll want to smack some people around.
     
  3. oh a good 360 game. CoD4, if not try GoW (this is a bad time to get a video game on just about any console, there has been a HUGE dryspell)oh oh oh, Mass Effect is great.

    also tuesday Fable 2 comes out.
     
  4. He already has CoD4. If you don't have BioShock, I'd get that. Doesn't have multiplayer, though. GoW would be kind of dumb to buy when GoW2 is so close. The Darkness was actually a fun FPS, but again, no MP. Not really what you asked for, but you could probably pick up Dead Rising pretty cheap. That was a fun game.
     
  5. i would hope GoW is in the $15 bin by now.
     
  6. I'm sure it's really cheap, but GoW2 looks like it'll be quite a bit cooler. Might as well just wait and pay the difference. Though, I guess for ~$15, it's definitely worth playing as well.
     
  7. yeah, that was assuming that if he doesnt have it, then he probably isnt that interested in getting GoW2.
     
  8. LittleBigPlanet Release Update

    During the review process prior to the release of LittleBigPlanet, it has been brought to our attention that one of the background music tracks licensed from a record label for use in the game contains two expressions that can be found in the Qur'an. We have taken immediate action to rectify this and we sincerely apologize for any offense that this may have caused.

    We will begin shipping LittleBigPlanet to retail in North America the week of October 27th. Sorry for the delay, and rest assured, we are doing everything we can to get LittleBigPlanet to you as soon as possible.

    The controversial LittleBigPlanet song is called Tapha Niang and you can listen to it in upper-right corner...

    http://www.last.fm/music/Toumani+Diabate's+Symmetric+Orchestra/_/Tapha+Niang


    The included quotations, which are currently unconfirmed, are said to include:

    "Kollo nafsin tha'iqatol mawt", or Every soul shall have the taste of death.
    "Kollo man alaiha fan", or All that is on earth will perish.


    A forum poster, whose identity will remain unknown, continued to state:

    "We Muslims consider the mixing of music and words from our Holy Qur'an deeply offending. We hope you would remove that track from the game immediately via an online patch, and make sure that all future shipments of the game disk do not contain it. We hope you act immediately to avoid any confusion and unnecessary controversy, and we thank you for making such an amazing game."
     
  10. You're right. Much better to publicize murder, theft, war etc.
     
  11. M777 dont you like black and white?
     
  12. He specifically said 'shooters and rts's'.

    Playing those genres with twin sticks is like you playing your 360 with boxing gloves on. Split screen died for shooters and doesn't exist for rts, you don't chill with other people while playing multiplayer at all.

     
  13. exactly, i'll play multiplayer fps on a console if its at a party, and thats the reason i have CoD4 for the 360, but if the main focus of the game is the story mode, like crysis or bioshock, then there is no question which platform im getting it on.

    as for RTS, like you said, you cant play multi poeple in one room anyway, unless its turn based, so whats the point when the controls are so much better on pc?
     
  14. And those were the genres I was talking about. Well, FPSs, anyway. I've never played an RTS on a console, but I play shooters on consoles all the time. I've played a bunch on PC as well and they're fine on consoles. They're not as precise, but they're definitely good enough. And I hang out with people and just talk and shit while playing single player/online multiplayer all the time. Also, I have played split screen MP FPS games a number of times in the past year.

    something similar happened to Zelda Ocarina of time and also to the wii game Zack and wiki: quest for Barbaros Treasure. In both cases some muslim chanting was involved. I still have the original N64 cart with the muslim chanting and it sounds so much more atmospheric in the fire temple because of it. I really dont get why something like that has to be removed.
    heres the Zelda music in its original form:


    and changed form:

    that music is what it is. Its a shame this had to be removed. If anything, the positive and creative sides of islam should be freely observed around the world to prevent ignorant hatred of a whole religion. the war was not about hatred of muslims it was about stopping terrorism, and there is an entire culture of muslims- and that includes music- which is entirely benign like this and should be freely heard and experienced.
     
  17. Little Big planet is pretty much one of those flash physics games on probably costs $60.

    Maybe this will shed some light on your confusion.

    It took Media Molecule.. a bunch of mates from down my way, 20 minutes on the A3 trunk road.. a couple of years to perfect the interface which allows some nobody to recreate his favourite Mario level, and this guy to make an 8 bit calculator that adds and subtracts.



    They did a fab job
     
  21. no
     
  22. So who here has played Braid?
     
  23. LOL

    I'm going to remember this post and rub it in your face when it wins Game of the Year. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A>
     
  24. Do you honestly not understand the point I was making?
     
  25. What are you going to do when the PS3 doesn't outsell the 360?
